Cindy, 2 months ago my husband received a 3 week Oxycontin prescription to deal the pain of a back injury. Because he still suffered from pain and no longer had Oxycontin, he began using Heroin. He sleeps all day and his behavior is erratic. What can I do to help?

Cindy, writes:
Jessica, opiate abuse is a serious problem. First, your husband must undergo a detoxification process to relieve him of withdrawal symptoms. Because detox alone is not treatment for drug addiction he will then have to enter a residential treatment program so that he can learn how to return to a more stable and productive life.
